A scandal-hit councillor who was once the highest-paid in the UK has courted controversy once again by claiming to have slept with an Arsenal footballer.
Brian Coleman, who calls himself the ‘King of Bling’, made the surprising statement in a post on his blog about an unrelated subject.
He did not give any hint as to who the player might have been, other than saying he was a striker.
His unusual claim about his sex life came in a blog post last week about Barnet FC’s plans to move stadiums.
Mr Coleman, who is openly gay, wrote: ‘For someone who has little interest in Football, although I did attend Barnet v Port Vale at Underhill a couple of years ago, and once slept with an Arsenal striker, I am not fussed if Barnet survive in the Football League or bothered where they play.’
It is unclear when the incident allegedly took place, or who the footballer was.
When contacted today, the councillor refused to reveal the identity of the player.
